2018 Doors Open Winnipeg - Sherbrook Pool

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Kinsmen Sherbrook Pool today for its first-ever appearance at Doors Doors Open Winnipeg. The pool is not part of day two, but check out some of the other 100 or so building and walking tours on offer.

Here are a few links related to the pool....
